    You can find screenshots below.

    Early Development


    Later in development: Downloads aren't displayed as buttons


    Even later in development: Downloads are displayed as buttons


    Screenshot of alphabetical order sorting


    Later in development: Auto-Fill feature, update table button deleted.


    Later in Developement: Links are displayed as hyperlinks, near the end of development


    This is a database based program, where you can view various hacks, and download them at will.
    You can switch between Custom Stages, Music Hacks, Texture Hacks and Sound Hacks.

    I like to keep people updated on the progress of things, so check back for any new information and screenshots.
    You can sort them by alphabetical order, modify the SDF files (Databases), or use the preset order.
    Remember, THE DATA TABLES ARE NOT FINISHED.

    Download
    Find the source code.

    If you plan to edit the databases, please add the creator, hack name, and the DIRECT download link.
    Database Downloads
    NONE.

    This looks nice Tongue would you be able to make the tables searchable by back name? Also, maybe checkboxes that show only a certain characters hacks.

    Just a few suggestions. Can't wait to see this. Good luck Tongue

    EDIT: New Screenshot!

    Thanks, I've been wanting to create this for a while, but I didn't know how to... Now I do. Being coded in C#.

    New screenshots



    EDIT: You can sort them by alphabetical order, or the preset order.
    Here's a screenshot of this.


    EDIT 2:

    The tables automatically fill themselves.
    I've removed the button for Table update.
    And the controls are bigger.

    Does the program save the files to the location where they should be? Let's say you donwload a mario hack, and want it over red mario, would it save it as FitMario01.pcs on the mario folder?
    That would be nice, but I guess the amount of zipfiles on the vault would make this dificult. If they were all pcs you could implement that rather easily.

    This would actually be a bit more complicated then it seems, though it can be done. i'm sure if he can, he will add it in a future update. Tongue

    I know how complicated it'd be, I am a programmer as well Tongue That's why I know the different way people upload stuff would complicate stuff more than needed. If everyone uploaded in an standard form, it'd be easy to implement this. But since that's not the case, it becomes more difficult.

    The databases are stored as .sdf files. All you need is a copy of Visual C# to edit them. People will be able to make their own ordering, and help out to add all the hacks.

    EDIT2: All I need to do is add support for parsing all the other SDF Databases.

    New screenshot



    EDIT3:

    Have a download.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/dr0gh80g63jhoz9/Hack-Downloader%20%28Beta%29.zip

    Don't delete the .sdf files.
    those contain the databases.

    Looks like a nice idea. Maybe you could add a column for wifi-safety in stages and texture hacks, in case people want hacks that don't change the gameplay at all. And maybe another column for preview links? Like another url that takes to a video or picture instead of the download itself or something.
